A Texas educator went missing months ago and now her husband is being accused of murder, despite the fact the body has not been found.
According to authorities, Travis Hall, 48, was indicted by a grand jury for hitting and killing his wife, Julie Hall, 47, with a wrench and blunt object.
Julie Hall was reported missing when she did not show up for work on Feb. 22 as a special education teacher’s aide in Georgetown County, Texas, police said.
The Austin American-Statesman reported police found bloodstains in the couple’s apartment and a bloody wrench in Travis Hall’s truck. Authorities said Travis Hall told police his wife’s blood was on it because she had cut her hand while trying to help him change a drill.
However, Julie Hall’s son told police he never noticed any injuries on his mother’s hand.
A letter written by Travis Hall to his son and daughter was also found in the kitchen of the couple’s apartment on Feb. 22. In the letter, Travis Hall confessed he killed the educator, according to officials.
In February, Travis Hall was charged with two counts of tampering with evidence in connection to the case. Recently, the grand jury added the murder charge, despite the fact Julie Hall's body has not been found.
Travis has been held in the Williamson County Jail since Feb. 26 and his bail for the tampering charges was set at $1 million, officials said.
